CDC Releases New Guidelines for all Areas of Child Development in ages 0-5

Parents can now use an app created by the CDC to track their children’s social/emotional, physical, cognitive and fine and gross motor skill development from birth to age 5. The CDC recently updated it’s developmental milestones to include additional months and skills to reach children as young as possible for early intervention services if needed. Many of the time lines have been lengthened which is not ideal since the earlier a child receives any necessary services the better since children who would have previously qualified for services may now not or until they’re older because they’re struggling in school.
